Every week, we walk into a bar in a new state. We want to know what makes a good bar (and what makes a good church), so we ask people about it. Come on, sit at the bar with us!

We walk into a museum (and find suggestions of bars)
When we visited the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, MO, we were impressed by the contributions the liquor industry has made to the world of art. This work, Dasasa, created by the Nigerian artist, El Anatsui, was particularly impressive:
His materials? Liquor bottle caps and copper wire.
Fortunately, not all art is created after the spirits are gone. This covered tankard made by the John Dwight factory in England (between 1685 and 1690) showed that you could be artistic while still holding your beer.
